GARDEN STATE star Zach Braff fulfilled a dream of a lifetime on Wednesday morning (08DEC04) - when he showed off his magic tricks.

The actor, star of American TV series SCRUBS, admitted during his appearance on ELLEN DeGENERES' chat show that he'd always fantasised about demonstrating his magic talents onstage.

He said, "My whole life I loved magic and my dream has always been to do not one of those small card tricks, but do a huge, elaborate stage show magic trick."

His wish was granted when DeGeneres allowed him to strap her inside a huge contraption and then shroud her with her curtain. When Braff went behind the curtain, DeGeneres immediately walked around to reveal that the pair had swapped places, with Braff locked away inside display unit.
